The church has a lot of potential. The property has been cared for even though the congregation has become small. This church has been without consistent pastoral leadership for about 12 years, and that has contributed to the decline.
At present, the church can offer the pastor that's selected the following compensation:
1. Parsonage (rent free)
2. All utilities
3. $150 / week honorarium
The NMB is assisting this church with their pastoral search and with revitalization plans. Once a new pastor has been found, the NMB will be coming alongside the pastor to assist him with revitalizing this ministry.
If you have a gift for evangelism, vision, leadership, team-building, and would be interested in becoming part of the Streator, Illinois community with the goal of making the gospel known, building disciples, and helping to revitalize a struggling church with lots of potential, please take a moment to apply.
As stated above, we are looking for someone who can be bi-vocational. The church can supply housing, utilities, and a modest weekly honorarium, but the new pastor will also need to have an additional source of outside income during the early years of his service in this church revitalization ministry.

Note: As part of the revitalization, the name of the church will be updated
